What is Chavruta?

Chavruta, which means ‘companionship’, is the study among small groups to uncover the meaning of specific texts. In doing so, we hope that our students gain a greater understanding of the passages, and can apply it to their own lives.

In studying together this way, long-standing friendships are often formed between study companions.

The original concept has been adapted by Rabbi Igor into a modern format for LJS Members and Friends. The LJS Chavruta encourages intriguing debates on applying traditional texts to our own lives using many of the different influences in our society, such as modern and classical literature, poetry, and of course, music.

How it works

Each month, Rabbi Igor and Dr Dov Softi select a few texts and questions for study companions to discuss. 

Meetings can be virtual or in person and last for around an hour. The texts will be read and discussed, and questions answered. Conversations aren't limited to the study sheet and questions provided, and discussion into other areas, texts and topics is encouraged.

After the first two sessions, each group will have a feedback session with Rabbi Igor, and participants can continue studying within the same group, or join up with other study companions.
